Inter have reportedly initiated contacts with Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s agent over a summer transfer for the Serbian, but face stiff competition from across Europe.
Milinkovic-Savic has returned to his best form this season after a dip in form last season.
FCInterNews.It speculate that Inter’s general manager Beppe Marotta has started tentative talks with the Serbian’s agent in a bid to convince the Lazio midfielder to sign for the Nerazzurri in the summer.
Marotta has been an admirer of the 24-year-old for a while, and tried to bring him to Juventus.
However, Inter reportedly face competition from Chelsea and French behemoths Paris Saint-Germain for Milinkovic-Savic.
The French champions reportedly made a bid last summer, but Lazio President Claudio Lotito rejected the €60m offer.
It’s believed that Lotito’s asking price for the midfielder is set at €80m.
